"The Toxic Avenger" a musical comedy with book and lyrics by Joe DiPietro and music and lyrics by David Bryan

Shows run from 9/30 - 10/30 (Friday, Saturday at 8pm, and Sunday matinees only at 2pm)

Melvin Ferd the Third wants to clean up Tromaville, the most polluted town in New Jersey (just off Exit 13B on the Turnpike). Foiled by the mayor’s bullies, Melvin is dumped into a vat of radioactive toxic waste, only to reemerge as The Toxic Avenger, New Jersey’s first superhero. Affectionately known as Toxie, the new hero is a mutant freak with superhuman strength and a heart as big as Newark. He’s out to save New Jersey, end global warming, and woo the blind librarian in town.
